Do you feel that "technology unemployment" is a factor of less jobs being available for people?
There has been great strides in the field of technology during the last 17 years. But, the downside is that the creation of technology is doing more harm in regards to employment than good. Jobs that were done by human beings are now being replaced by a simple software apparatus or machine. Medical billing and coding is one of them. Applications are no longer meticulously screened by human resource departments thanks to the applicant tracking system software. Could this be a major issue in the future?
There are jobs machines can't do yet, and there are things we don't want machines to do. And as unemployment goes up, the cost of labor comes down, making it cheaper to use people instead of machines.
I wrote about this in my hub The Great Shift Toward Automation and the Future of Employment.

How long do you think a person should be on unemployment?There are current people who have been on unemployment for almost 2 years. Do you think unemployment should be a short term safety net or should it last as long as a person needs?

The nation’s employers added 114,000 jobs in September, a modest showing that was less than the previous month. But the unemployment rate dropped to 7.8 percent from 8.1 percent, the lowest since Obama took office in January 2009. http://www.nytimes.com/2012/10/06/busin … -8.html?hp
